Hello there, Jerrob. Thought i'd just say hi as a fellow UK poster. Nice to have someone in the same time zone - I always seem to miss out on the best of the goings on here!

Hi Rob I've been following your posts with interest. Thanks for saying hello. I feel quite at home already here. Wish I could stay on all day. We miss out on a lot i think, mainly due to the high cost of postage. I've never been to the States but I'd love to go. I'd take loads of dosh (wishful thinking) and buy all those great records we can't get here.

Good to have you onboard. I was really uncertain about making that first post - now i just pile right in! You can always order things via the net - just do it in small quantities so customs and excise don't get suspicious! What are you interested in - besides the Dead of course?

Well that could probably take up a whole thread in itself. But really I only listen to the Dead these days. When I first discovered the internet and typed Grateful Dead in the search box, I can't describe my feelings when I found whole shows there and then when I started to listen...nuff said. But in the 60's and early 70's there was so much outstandingly superlative-busting music coming from the states. Everything from the Allmans to Zappa, with Dylan, Fugs, Canned Heat, Love, Pearls Before Swine,
H.P.Lovecraft, Moby Grape, Country Joe & the Fish, Airplane, Tim Buckley, John Fahey, Quicksilver and those are only the ones off the top of my head. There was also loads of obscure stuff, which are only the shadow of a distant memory now.
I do sometimes go to the gdstore and dream of investing in some of the treasure there.
